The investment management industry has seen explosive growth worldwide. As securities markets around the globe continue their development, many investment advisers seek access to an international client base and crossborder investments. These trends, plus the significant impact of the Internet as a business medium, make the regulation of investment advisers increasingly complex and important. Recently, many countries have either implemented or substantially revised their investment adviser regulations, posing new challenges for advisers with an international business focus. In this environment, knowledge of regulatory schemes around the world is essential.

When this book was first published in 2001, the convergence of communications and computing had begun to transform Western industrial societies. Increasing connectivity was accompanied by unprecedented opportunities for crimes of acquisition. The fundamental principle of criminology is that crime follows opportunity, and opportunities for theft abound in the digital age. Electronic Theft named, described and analysed the range of electronic and digital theft, and constituted the first major survey of the field. The authors covered a broad list of electronic misdemeanours, including extortion, defrauding governments, telephone fraud, securities fraud, deceptive advertising and other business practices, industrial espionage, intellectual property crimes, and the misappropriation and unauthorised use of personal information. They were able to capture impressively large amounts of data internationally from both scholarly and professional sources. The book posed and attempted to answer some of the pressing questions to do with national sovereignty and enforceability of laws in 2001.

[Hedge Funds. Risiken und Regulierung] Bei diesem Buch handelt es sich um den Einführungsband der Schriftenreihe des Institute for Law and Finance. Er enthält die Beiträge der ILF/DAI-Konferenz, die im Mai 2003 unter dem Titel "Hedge Funds: Risiken und Regulierung" stattfand. Die Beiträge diskutieren die wirtschaftlichen Merkmale von Hedge Funds und Strategien der Regulierung von Fonds. Die ersten beiden Aufsätze untersuchen Hedge Funds aus ökonomischem Blickwinkel. Alexander M. Ineichen, Geschäftsführer und Leiter von AIS Research bei UBS, erläutert die ökonomische Realität von Hedge Funds frei von den Mythen, die sich um sie gerankt haben. Im Anschluss stellt Franklin R. Edwards, Professor und Direktor des Zentrums für das Studium von Zukunftsmärkten an der Columbia Business School in New York, dar, wie die Regulierung von Hedge Funds auf ihre ökonomische Kernrealität, die Ziele finanzieller Stabilität und des Schutzes der Investoren zugeschnitten sein müsste. Als nächste stellen Marcia L. MacHarg, Partnerin bei Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, Ashley Kovas, Manager in der Abteilung für Businessstandards der Finanzdienstleistungsbehörde in London, und Edgar Wallach, Partner von Hengeler Mueller, den Stand der relevanten Regulierungsstrukturen in den Vereinigten Staaten, in Großbritannien und in Deutschland vor. Das Buch schließt mit einer Analyse der Gesellschaftsstrukturen, die auf deutsche Hedge Funds angewendet werden, verfasst von Kai-Uwe Steck, einem Mitglied der German Asset Management practice group der Shearman & Sterling LLP.

The Section on Business Law of the International Bar Association is greatly indebted to the Editor, J. Michael Robinson and to John Gauntlett, the Chairman of the Committee on Issues and Trading in Securities, and his Vice Chairmen, Blaise Pasztory, Robert Briner and the members of the Committee who have contributed, for their joint efforts in preparing this ftrst book of their committee. It will make a valuable addition to the libraries of all practising lawyers because it has been written by practising lawyers, with the knowledge and experience of their own daily work and the understanding of what a practi tioner is looking for. I am confident that this book will prove of real assistance to practitioners world-wide, as have previous publications of other Committees of the Section on Business Law. I wish it great success. I hope that you may wish to join the Section on Business Law and thereby make contact and work with lawyers with similar interests in commercial law. WALTER OPPENHOF Chairman of the Section on Business Law XI Editor's Introduction I have great pleasure in presenting reports from fourteen countries. In the best tradition of many institutions of higher learning which trace their origins to some medieval ale house, this project has its genesis in a bar.

Call centers have come, in the last three decades, to define the interaction between corporations, governments, and other institutions and their respective customers, citizens, and members. The offshoring and outsourcing of call center employment, part of the larger information technology and information-technology-enabled services sectors, continues to be a growing practice amongst governments and corporations in their attempts at controlling costs and providing new services. While incredible advances in technology have permitted the use of distant and "offshore" labor forces, the grander reshaping of an international political economy of communications has allowed for the acceleration of these processes. New and established labor unions have responded to these changes in the global regimes of work by seeking to organize call center workers. These efforts have been assisted by a range of forces, not least of which is the condition of work itself, but also attempts by global union federations to build a bridge between international unionism and local organizing campaigns in the Global South and Global North. Through an examination of trade union interventions in the call center industries located in Canada and India, this book contributes to research on post-industrial employment by using political economy as a juncture between development studies, the sociology of work, and labor studies.

The reform of social security pensions and healthcare is a key issue for the modern world, and in many ways Latin America has acted as a social laboratory for the reform of these systems. From the reforms that took place in Chile in 1981, most pension and health care systems in the region have seen reform, and been fully or partially privatized. Many other countries considering reform of their own systems have been influenced by the policies implemented in Latin America. Yet despite the importance and influence of these reforms, until now there has not been an integrated and comprehensive analysis of the changes and their effects. This book is the result of four years of painstaking work, data collection, field research and international collaboration, and so fills the vacuum in the literature with a systematic comparison of pension and healthcare reforms in the 20 Latin American countries. It identifies reform models, and elaborates taxonomies to facilitate their understanding and comparison. Some key features of the reforms to emerge are: labour force and population coverage, equity and solidarity, sufficiency and quality of benefits, state regulation, competition and degree of privatization, efficiency and administrative costs, social participation in management, financing sources and long-term sustainability. Effects of the reforms on social security principles are measured based on recent standardized statistics and other information. Goals or assumptions of the reforms are contrasted with actual outcomes, and the pros and cons of private versus private provision assessed. Detailed policy recommendations are offered to correct current problems and improve pension and healthcare systems. This is the first book to comprehensively study these influential reforms in Latin America's pension and health care systems, and as such will be of importance to academics and researchers interested in social security and welfare policy, pensions, health care, and public policy; Social security, pension, and health care policy-makers; And social security, pension, and health care consultants and practitioners.
